    Code:
    $ apt-get update
    or
    $ aptitude update
    will update the data-base, while

    Code:
    $ sudo apt-get upgrade
    or
    $ sudo aptitude upgrade
    will actually upgrade the software accordingly to your sources.list

    use sudo apt-get upgrade or sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

    If a package needs to install or remove new dependencies when being upgraded, it will not be upgraded by the upgrade command. For such an upgrade, it is necessary to use the dist-upgrade command.

    make sure you used the update command before using the upgrade commands

    Older thread, but incomplete

    For newer releases do in a console window:
    Code:
    sudo do-release-upgrade
